Yampupata

After the car blessing, we decided to take care of a few more car things. An oil change was a the top of the list and there was a guy just a few blocks from the church.  We dropped by and he crawled under the car and went to work. He was curious about our trip and we started talking about where to go next.

We thought we would split and head towards Sorata, but he suggested otherwise. Go to Yampupta. Only an hour’s drive, right along the lake, and a good way to spend the afternoon. Simple enough.

Beautiful. Tranquil. The Bolivian side of Titicaca has surprised us.

A little piece of land, a mud-brick casita with a big garden keeps sounding better and better.

    I don’t think I could be there that long without checking out the fishing possibilities. Must be some firm fish flesh in that cold water somewhere!

    Hay trucha! Trout is farmed in the lake and you can get a complete platter for about $2.50 USD. Beats fishing.

    Looks like you guys have slowed right down. Enjoy the trout – I miss it.
